About the neighbourhood
The location is quiet, with little passing traffic, the vineyards are a few steps away so lovely walks and cycle rides. You can walk along the River to Chenonceaux or shop in Montrichard, Tours or Amboise; there is a market every day so take your choice; local cafes and restaurants are excellent. Visit Tours and sit in the square at the historic Place Plumereau. Other attractions include river boats through the arches at Chenonceau or on the Loire at Amboise; the aquarium at Amboise, zoo at St Aignan.
